The Sperm Aneuploidy Test (SAT)

The Sperm Aneuploidy Test (SAT) is a diagnostic test to study the genetic etiology of male infertility. In particular, this test evaluates the percentage of spermatozoa with chromosomal abnormalities in a sperm sample.

This analysis allows the estimation of the transmission risk of chromosomal abnormalities to the offspring. This test analyzes the chromosomes mostly implicated in spontaneous miscarriages and affected offspring with chromosomal abnormalities (chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y).

It is advised for the following indications:

  • Couples with recurrent miscarriage
  • Couples failing to conceive after several IVF treatments
  • Infertile men with impaired sperm parameters
